Nutritional values

Beet owes its bright color to the plant pigment betanin. This acts as an antioxidant and thus protects the body cells from damage by free radicals. The betanin is supported by beta-carotene from Sweet potatoeswhich performs the same task. At the same time, beta-carotene is a precursor of vitamin A, which is important for healthy eyes and radiant skin.

If you like, you can use regular potatoes instead of sweet potatoes, which adds a new twist in terms of flavor. Vegans replace the feta either with a vegetable substitute or with a handful of coarsely chopped walnuts or almonds.
